Review originally written on A Place For Mom

Very safe, friendly, and accommodating

The staff is wonderful. When my mother first moved it, they were very understanding of her recently being widowed. They have wonderful activities, both at the residence and as outings. The dining area is very nice, and the portions are generous.

Mom is Happy

I like this setup for independent living for mom because they have caregivers on site if the caregiver we have couldn't make it or something which is a nice backup. It is a pretty, nice , new building. The food is terrific. Since it is so new it's not full yet but soon maybe more residents will come. The staff is so nice and accommodating. They have a rooftop terrace that has potted plants and trees are coming soon. Mom's room is overlooking that.

This is a very nice new place but a bit pricey. I don't think it is the place for my Mom.
